Politician Shot Dead By Security Aide
Ndubuisi Emenike, the 2019 Imo North Senatorial District candidate for the Action Alliance (AA) has been shot and killed by his own security aide.
It was gathered that Emenike was shot by his orderly, an operative of the Nigeria Security and Civil Defence Corps (NSCDC).
An eyewitness report said the Civil Defence official was shooting sporadically into the air during a political celebration before he accidentally shot Emenike.
Emenike reportedly fell immediately and lost consciousness. He was rushed to the Federal Medical Center, Owerri where he was confirmed dead.
Confirming the sad incident, the Imo State Police command spokesman, Orlando Ikeokwu told journalists on Sunday that Emenike was shot dead by the NSCDC personnel during a celebration gathering for APC’s Miriam Onuoha, the winner of the rerun Okigwe North Federal Constituency election.
The Police say the orderly is presently in custody and that command has opened an investigation.
“I can confirm the shooting of Ndubuisi Emenike,” Ikeokwu said. “The officer who shot him is presently in custody.”
